'Divergent' Movie WILL be Filmed in Chicago

According to The Chicago Sun Times, the Divergent movie will be true to the book and film scenes in Chicago:

"The film, based on the popular book trilogy for young adults titled “Divergent,” will star actress Shailene Woodley, who recently starred in the hit George Clooney film “The Descendants.”
Gov. Pat Quinn’s Illinois Film Office — as well as the massive film studio Cinespace — worked hard to recruit the gig, which is expected to bring the state tons of cash and lure the same teen audience who ensured the monetary success of the “Twilight” film series and “The Hunger Games,” both of which are based on books.
“They’ve been busy for months wooing a new blockbuster to Illinois,” said the source. The movie is about a teenage girl who lives in a dystopian Chicago society divided into factions based on different virtues. Filmmakers “fell in love” with various shooting locations around Chicago, according to the source."
